Join us for an evening of games, adult beverages, food, music and more! All are welcome to enjoy the Metal Museum & Grounds after-hours for free from 5 - 8PM on August 2nd. We have a fun evening planned with ALIVE Rescue Memphis who will have adoptable dogs on site. For one night only, we invite you to bring your well-behaved pups to the Museum Foundry to have their paw prints cast in a aluminum (cost is $30). You can also make your own stamped copper dog tags or keychains for your furry friend at home! Come explore the Museum's exhibitions and join us for a gallery talk at 6PM.

FOOD: Soi Number 9 and MEMPopS
MUSIC: Marcella & Her Lovers
